20 Bollywood Movies That Were So Bad That They Ruined Careers

20 Bollywood Movies That Were So Bad That They Ruined Careers Hindi Article

The fickleness of Bollywood has been seen by all those who are involved, like the producers, the audience, the actors and everyone else. Even when a movie is good, with a remarkable script, commendable actors, a director who knows his job well and everything else in place, it may sink at the box office, and then the burden falls on the producers, who lose money, and actors, who lose offers and reputation. However, some movies are just plain bad. So bad that we know long before the trailer release that it will not do good, and when the trailer releases, we become even sure that the movie will not be able to do well. What is always surprising is how actors who have acted in the films actually have hopes for the film becoming a big hit on the box office, despite the absolute lack of script in most of the movies.

The following are 20 such movies that performed deplorably at the box office.
